DVD-ROM Drive Compatibility Test for DVD-R(General), DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM Discs
Oliver T. Slattery
A test to ensure full compatibility between a particular DVD-ROM drive and a particular type of DVD recordable or rewritable media has been developed at the National Institute of Standards and TEchnology in collaboration with the DVD Association (DVDA) and the Optical Storage TEchnology Association (OSTA). The test is designed to give the end user confidence in the playability of a particular brand of DVD writable media (including DVD-R(for general), DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM) with the DVD-ROM drive in their computer. The test is also designed to be as simple to implement as possible without compromising the integrity of the result, such that it can be performed by any end user. Drive and media with full compatibility will be able to successfully pass this test with ease.
